Hi, I have two IC-R10's in very nice condition. Previous owner passed away several years ago and left the rechargeble batteries inside the units(The contacts had very little corrosion left from the...


  • Hi, I can help.

  • It is very possible that the corrosion could be a little worse than initially thought. Look for unnoticed corrosion and clean the contacts real real well with a pencil eraser.

  • Under the third battery is a switch marked (Charge) OFF/ON. When using the power supplies to power the scanner the switch should be off (pushed to the left). When using batteries the switch should be turned to on (pushed to the right)

  • The internal charger is meant to charge Ni-Cad batteries not Alkaline batteries. If you have Alkaline batteries in the unit then you should never have that switch to on with the power cord plugged in or a charge will be attempted on the Alkaline batteries and they will explode/leak.

  • The problem will be that switch, unnoticed corrosion or the batteries you are using are not good.


  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.


Regards, Tony

The camera doesn't turn on. I used it, put it away and when I go to use it again, nothing. What could be wrong?


What type of batteries? If Ni-Mh then just recharge them...
Some cameras draw off a little power to keep the internal clock going so maybe the batteries
got discharged.. or if alkaline just try a new set of batteries

My camera won't turn on. I put in brand new batteries straight out of the package and i put them in to the camera and it sttill won't work. i hold the power button for about 10 seconds. Not working.


AA batteries can be placed in the camera the wrong way around. They can also cause corrosion of the battery contacts if left in for long periods or run down. I would check these two things before assuming a fault.

Vivicam X30 Problem


This is most commonly caused by dirt/grit or a power problem.

Try turning the camera lens down and blowing compressed air from a can (keyboard cleaner) or compressor into the area between the lens and the camera. Once you finish the cleaning, hold the zoom button in and power the camera on.

If the above doesn't clear the problem, make sure that your battery is fresh and fully charged. If the battery is more than a year old it probably needs to be replaced.

Finally, check and clean the contacts on the battery and inside the camera's battery compartment. Corrosion builds up on the contacts, especially if a camera is unused for a while, and it's not always visible. Wipe the contacts firmly with a clean dry cloth to remove light corrosion - a heavy buildup may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper. After the cleaning, place the battery back in the camera and give it good charge.

HINT: The battery cleaning also works for cell phones, PDAs, laptops, and other items that use rechargeable batteries. Always check it before you chuck it.

If none of the above work, your camera probably has lens damage that will require a professional repair.

When camera is turned on it suddenly powers down


Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

I have a ViviCam 3650, I put new lithum batteries in it, turned it on I get a red light but nothing else


Make sure that you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.
